I never understood the whole golden shower thing. I don’t want to drink urine, don’t want someone to pee on me, don’t want it in my food.
But, who can explain people.
According to the The Daily Dot, Cameron Jankowski allegedly posted a photo of himself taking a leak on a Taco Bell order.
Hacktivist collective Anonymous tweeted a link to a YouTube video that reportedly lists Janowski’s personal details. He was identified as an employee at a Taco Bell restaurant in Fort Wayne, Ind. The video also includes screenshots of tweets that Jankowski posted and retweeted.
Though his account appears to have been deleted, Topsy archived Jankowski’s tweeted photo, which appears to have been posted early Thursday. He directed the tweet to Hunter Moore, the man behind shuttered revenge porn site Is Anyone Up?
Jankowski claimed that the order he urinated on was one that was already messed up. It was thrown away and not served to customers. But some Twitter users suggested his action was a felony.
Janowski apparently claimed he didn’t care that other users were directing his tweet to Taco Bell, claiming he had a new job lined up anyway.
In response, Taco Bell provided the following statement to the Daily Dot:
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and team members. We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. As soon as we learned of the situation, we immediately investigated and found the photo was an ill-conceived prank and the food was never served to customers. We find this prank absolutely unacceptable, and we plan to terminate anyone involved and work with authorities to pursue legal action.”
I hate leaf blowers. Too noisy. Too lazy. And then there’s the poop.
Steve Annear of BostInno writesresidents in Arlington, Mass.—both for and against a recent leaf blower ban—have been spewing hot air and making noise about the new bylaw that keeps people from cleaning up leaves and debris.
Today, voters will head to the polls to decide on whether or not the recent prohibition of leaf-pushers should be overturned during a special election in the town.
For local activist Jeremy Marin, it’s not about the loud, disruptive noises that leaf blowers make, it’s about the adverse health effects that can stem from excessive use of the machines.
Specifically, it’s about people getting poop in their mouths.
Marin, who has been blogging about the issue for quite some time, claims pollen, debris and most notably, animal feces flying through the air, are just a few reasons why the ban should stay in tact and not be repealed by the people.
According to Marin’s blog, he tackles “everybody’s favorite topic—poop” :
Marin said studies show that particles on the surface, in fact, “get airborne with the 150-280 mph winds leaf blowers put out.”
Those speeds push the feces into the air, leading to people possibly inhaling it.
Giuseppe Mandara, whose mozzarella is sold by British supermarkets and UK-based online food suppliers, was also accused of producing batches contaminated with ceramic shards from a faulty machine.
The Telegraph reportsinvestigators said his Mandara Group had received significant injections of cash from the Camorra mafia, the organized crime group based in Campania, the region where mozzarella is produced.
Police seized assets worth more than £78 million, including the company.
They said the 56 year-old, who once described himself as the “Armani of mozzarella”, had struck up a secret commercial relationship with the Casalesi clan of the Camorra in the 1980s after he ran into financial difficulties.
The clan is based in and around the town of Casal di Principe, at the heart of a region famous for its mozzarella, which is produced from the milk of domesticated buffalo.
Police said Mr Mandara, who was photographed chomping on a cigar as he was led away by officers, was arrested on suspicion of mafia association and endangering public health. They said two tons of the company’s mozzarella may have been contaminated with minute ceramic fragments from a broken machine.
The company was also accused of passing off ordinary provolone cheese as being of a more superior quality with false labelling. Following news of his arrest, Mr Mandara was expelled from the Consortium for the Promotion of Buffalo Mozzarella after an emergency meeting of its council, which described the allegations as “very serious.”
Paula Forbes of Eater reportsa Burger King employee in Ohio posted a photo of him/herself standing in tubs of lettuce to anonymous internet playground 4chan with the caption "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King," and totally got busted for it.
4chan quickly got on the case, with anonymous users locating the specific Burger King (thanks to the photo's EXIF GPS data), and alerting its manager as well as the local media. The escapade was posted to Reddit with the caption, "Don't f--k with people's food."
4chan posters who contacted the restaurant's manager said he called the stunt "sick and pathetic" and said there'd be "hell to pay." Whether or not that's an exact quote, the incident did get all the way up to corporate. A spokesperson for Burger King tells Cleveland's Fox News 8 that, "We are investigating the matter and will take appropriate action as necessary."
According to Cleveland Scene, a shift manager said both the person in the photo and the manager on duty will likely be fired. Someday parents will tell stories like this to little kids to scare them from posting things they shouldn't on the Internet.
What appeared to be sewing needles were found in sandwiches served in business-class cabins on four Delta Air Lines flights to the U.S. from Amsterdam on Sunday, the airline confirmed.
The Wall Street Journal reportsa passenger on one of the flights was injured but declined medical treatment from paramedics after the plane landed in Minneapolis, Delta said.
The airline said it requires all of its caterers "to adhere to strict criteria in order to offer our customers the very best onboard meals. The safety and security of our passengers and crew is Delta's No. 1 priority."
Canada, the summit of mediocrity, and where a Maple Leafs jersey can only be cool 15,000 miles away.
That’s Sorenne with teacher Nancy at pre-school. Nancy was born in Arnprior, raised in Pembroke that’s near Ottawa, in Canada (hello Alanis).
To my fans at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency who think my mentions of geography is derogatory and are once again dispensing crappy food safety advice for Canada Day, I have readers in 69 other countries who aren’t as self-important as Canada.
Nancy said, I don’t suppose you’d know where Pembroke is, which was the perfect launching point into a twisted tale of hallucinogens, backroads with my friend Dave and my high school sweetheart’s family cottage in nearby Barry’s Bay.
Nancy said I had an evil past.
I said I just like to tell stories.
Nancy was arranging pancakes and maple syrup for today, but they don’t let me cook – even though I volunteered – after I showed up with my own tip sensitive digital thermometer.
I don’t golf anymore because I sorta like my wife.
But for years Chapman was called Sweat Tea.
Not by me, but government types, who have this predilection to come up with nicknames for everyone, like it matters.
The name came from a golf trip to Virginia about 10 years ago. Being a northerner and not yet fluent in Virginiaisms, Chapman was sorta baffled when a server at Golden Corral – an annual meal imposed by the golf trip organizer – asked if he wanted his tea sweet or unsweet.
Chapman said, what?
This went on for a few minutes until he finally figured out the difference between sweet tea and unsweetened ice tea. He only knew about Red Rose.
Better than the patrons at a Dallas-area restaurant who in April 2010, suffered acute-onset dizziness and fainting resulting from low blood pressure within minutes of consuming food from the restaurant and were consistent with chemical poisoning.
Toxicologic and epidemiologic investigations were begun to determine the cause of the poisonings and identify potentially exposed persons. This report summarizes the results of those investigations, including a case-control study that identified iced tea as the likely contaminated food or drink (odds ratio [OR] = 65; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 2.4–3,292). Approximately 5 months after the incident, extensive laboratory testing identified sodium azide (NaN3) and hydrazoic acid (formed when sodium azide contacts water) as the toxic agents in the iced tea. All five ill restaurant patrons recovered from their symptoms. For rapid-onset foodborne illnesses, chemical poisons should be considered as a potential cause, regardless of negative initial toxicologic screening tests. Although unusual chemicals can be challenging to detect, a multidisciplinary approach involving public health officials and forensic and medical toxicologists can lead to appropriate testing. In the absence of an identified agent, epidemiologic tools are valuable for active case-finding and confirming suspected contaminated food vehicles.
